I am currently a student attending TF North High School And Overall, I would say that it's a horrible school and I would not recommend anyone to send their child there. They do not stick to their motto . Everything at the school now is so negative. The staff do not care to help the troubled students whom are struggling with a few classes. The counselors are also horrible because you cannot talk to them about the classes you are having troubles in nor can you talk to them about anything personal because they would also put you down and make you feel worse than you already may feel. The overall environment and atmosphere of the school is very negative and unhappy . I hate that I even attend this school . I wish I can leave or either finish the classes online rather than participating in a stereotypical environment.

I am a current student at T.F. North and throughout my 3 years of attending this school, I have come to realize that this not a perfect school, but then again, is there such a thing? Every school has it's own issues and T.F. North is no exception. However, it is an exceptional school with some great teachers. I've been in Honors and AP classes my whole time here and the majority of my instructors have been amazing and extremely helpful. Many of them will even stay after school if a student needs extra help. The behaviors of the other students are of no concern to me as I know why I am there, to learn.

Honestly, TF north is the complete opposite it's motto. No one is hardworking, the average gpa is well under 3.0. No one is caring, there is either a fight or a huge altercation everyday. No one is respectful, I witness atleast two teachers per day get cursed out and disrespected. Finally, No one is responsible, there is a list put up every year for how much money students owe for missing books or temporary student id's and I've seen some students that owe hundreds sometimes even close to a thousand dollars. With all of that being said i wouldn't recommend any aspiring 8th graders out there to come to tf north.

I am a current student at t.f.north and I think that we as students could be a little better in disipline and that even though we might not have perfect of teachers and staff I belive that they are trying their best to be what our school motto is hardworking caring responsible and respectful which we are reminded to be each day and that is what the school has been teaching us along with the education that the extra money is being spent on so I think that T.F.North is being the best that it possiblly can try to be

I am a current student at T.F. North and I feel as though this school is not doing all they could for the students. There is a lot of students lacking behind, and not much help from teachers or councilors. I have personally had many different problems and tried to get help from the school and I was basically just ignored. I will say they do have some really great teachers who will go far out of their way to help students, but they are rather rare at this school. The schools discipline could also use some work, a lot of teachers look the other way with certain situations, when they should be punished, other wise they will just continue thinking what they are doing is okay. Over all this school has good potential, they just need to take a look around and step it up.

My child is in his 2nd Year of H.S. and so far my experience with this school has been positive. Hopefully, they will be able to continue to improve despite the recent tax issues-and not have to eliminate extra curric/classes nor teacher's assistants. The Asst. Principal seems to really care about the students, not to take anything away from the Principal. But most often I've seen and interacted with the Asst. Principal.

Parents need to be involved. Just because they are in high school does not mean they are adults. Students should be given responsiblity and decision making, however the parents must still be involved and set an example for their children. I feel there are many good opportunities for students to get involved in community projects (that includes school) but they need the support of their parents. I hope to see more parents support the school and teachers.
